PSCE to Collaborate with 5GIA on 5G for Public Safety
Thursday, May 24, 2018 | Comments

Public Safety Communication Europe (PSCE) and 5G Infrastructure Association (5GIA), representing the European industry in the 5G-PPP Research Program, signed a cooperation agreement to foster collaboration on 5G development.

The two associations share a common interest in ensuring that 5G will bring the necessary developments to the security and safety communications for improving the activities of the public protection and disaster response (PPDR) community.

“The PPDR sector is undergoing an important transition with the deployment of mission-critical mobile broadband technology,” said Manfred Blaha, PSCE president. “PSCE is very happy to help to bring the voice of the PPDR organizations and contribute to design the needs of the 5G security vertical. We are eager to develop this cooperation with 5GIA for the benefit of public safety and of our citizens.”

The main activities of this partnership will include exchanging information between the two organizations on 5G developments; participating in industry events, congresses and joint promotional activities; and contributing with their respective expertise to enhance the inputs of PPDR stakeholders and verticals on the development and deployment of 5G.

“Public safety and PPDR are becoming a growing focus area in the digital economy, and will play a key role in the next decade,” said Colin Willcock, 5G-IA board chairman. “The 5G-IA is keen to develop this cooperation with PSCE, to enhance the involvement of public-safety stakeholders in the 5G ecosystem.”
